I Scream for Cream

Everyone needs to cool off during the summer and the best way to do that is by eating a cool, crisp fruit salad with layers of whipped cream. I love all of the fruit that is in this season and the best part of fruit salad is how you can always mix and match different flavor combinations. I like to slice up peaches, bananas, strawberries and nectarines, but my favorite part is making the whipped cream. Alton Brown has a great recipe that takes no more than 20 minutes to make whipped cream from scratch.



Place a metal mixing bowl and metal whisk into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes.
Place the sugar into the mixing bowl and add the whipping cream. Whisk just until the cream reaches stiff peaks. Store any unused portion in an airtight container for up to 10 hours. When ready to use, rewhisk for 10 to 15 seconds.
